Satisfaction does not come with achievement, but with effort. Full effort is full victory Ghandi

Well sadly I did not make the cut with my layout this week for the Bad Girls Top Designer Challenge. I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't disappointed but a wise man (my DH lol) always says that it's not your successes that you learn from but rather your failures. I did learn a lot! And quite a few of my competition were already established design team members from scrap booking manufacturers and websites as well as published artists. I feel so lucky to have held my own for 4 weeks against talent like that! I know one day I too will realize my dream of being a Design Team member or Published Scrapper. All in good time!


Now for some good stuff. Here's my layout for this week's challenge at Scrapping Out Loud. I can hardly believe that I won the RAK for September over there. I am sooooo excited and can't wait to get my scrappy stuff in the mail! Wow Wow Wow! This week's challenge we had to use a quote from Dr. Suess in our layout somewhere. you've still got time to play along. Click the link on my blog and come join us, the designers are so sweet and talented! For my layout I came across this quote that was perfect for some pictures I had been wanting to scrap of my friend Elise's son Sam and Lily playing together on the day before they moved to Oregon. We miss them so much!



I also completed a couple of sketches for some blog candy entry for World Card Making Day over at Little Paper Shop blog. With Halloween approaching I've been making a lot for my craft fair coming up on Oct 18th!

And finally here is my entry for Lisabee's sketch me if you can challenge. I won a cute Cuttlebug embossing set I've already put to use a few weeks ago! Thanks so much Lisa!!!
